DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Learn to Earn Dayton has received a $1 million grant that will go directly towards helping local students.
Dayton is one of four communities receiving a combined $3.75 million in funding from a national group called Together for Students.
“Not only do we educate during the school day but we are also concerned about what happens with our families,” Dayton Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Lolli said. “These after-school opportunities and experiences with our families will be supported through this grant.”
Dayton Public Schools and Huber Heights City Schools are two local districts that will benefit from the grant. Both schools say it means more money for after-school and summer programs.
